The beginning of the Jonas Brother's movie was them running away from fans, and they did that because of AHDN. In another part of the movie, the Beatles are on the television.

And in England at Disney World they have a lot of Beatles stuff, and they had a picture of John officially ending The Beatles in the hotel I stayed at there.

Can totally identify with that.

It's not Disney, but the Beatles are mentioned (in a negative way) in Goldfinger.

James Bond says, "drinking a martini that's been stirred [or something to that effect] is like listening to the Beatles without earmuffs."

Ironically, decades later the same Sean Connery would record a spoken version of "In My Life" for George Martin's CD

It might have been put in the script so that you remember and talk about it. Boost the publicity. How dare they say that!! a-hard-days-night-paul-11

Good point.

But in 1964, "product placement" didn't exist the way it does today.

And who in the Beatles' entourage would have had the ear of the Goldfinger script writers?

I think it's more likely that the script writers wanted to put in some current events to make the movie seem, well, current; what more current than to reference the Beatles? And if you were beyond the teenage years, the consensus was that the Beatles were awful.

I didn't mean that The Beatles had something to do with the script. I mean, why would they write something like about themselves. I get your point though.

In relation to the Jonas Brothers pic...

I also agree with George's pick having more talent than the three of them combined :P

 

Any other Harry Potter fans?!

You are welcome. The site mentions one of my top 3 all time favorite movies, Grosse Pointe Blank. This is the outfit that led Joan Cusak's boss (played by her brother John) to refer to her as Sgt. Pepper.

Though not Disney movie, there is John's reference in new movie Ted, where guy says he owns John Lennon glasses and that they were very expensive.

I think this was referring to the noisy fans and not the Beatles themselves. I do recall hearing Long Tall Sally on a Lizzy McGuire episode, although I think it was Little Richard's version. Time to search deep in my memory bank.

Gerell, 

Welcome!

Good thought, but this is why I think James Bond is referring to the Beatles themselves: in 1963-1964 the Beatles were uniformly considered by the press to be (excessively) LOUD (and bad - at least until the movie A Hard Day's Night came out. Then they suddenly became the songwriters of the year).

One publication called the Beatles the loudest thing in Great Britain since the dismantling of the World War II sirens.

Bond's statement would therefore have been in step with the opinion of the general public.

But yes, the statement applies to the audience too!

Also, an Oxbridge-educated man of high class like James Bond would, as a character, certainly not have enjoyed or been interested in the Beatles' music.

Recent article from The Telegraph talks about the Beatles almost-connection to "The Jungle Book":

 

After my morning at the Animation Research Library, I visit another Disney facility. The Roy E Disney Animation Building is still secure but less incognito – a giant Mickey Mouse magician’s hat towers over the Burbank lot.

Inside, in the open-plan cafeteria, the man a Disney staffer refers to as “the maestro” is giving a lunchtime piano recital. Oscar-winning Richard Sherman, 85, and the surviving brother, is a dapper man in blazer, shiny shoes, pocket-square with cheerfully old-school entertainer mannerisms. He recounts the stories behind the Shermans’ compositions for The Jungle Book and Mary Poppins, before romping through them on the piano. What a treat to hear the man who co-wrote Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious perform it mere feet away.

Afterwards, I have an audience with this cinema and songwriting legend. One of the songs he and his brother wrote for The Jungle Book was That’s What Friends Are For. In the film it’s sung by four vultures. They have something like Liverpudlian accents, and sport conspicuous mop-tops. The Sherman Brothers’ idea was to have the Beatles sing the song. But it didn’t happen – either due, according to lore, to scheduling problems, or because a grumpy John Lennon declined.

“Yes, the second part of it is true,” Sherman fires back. “We thought it would be great to have the Beatles do it. And we wrote a quartet for them to do it. We attempted even to [write the song] in a rock style. And with the Beatles, John was running the show at the time, and he said [dismissively] ‘I don’t wanna do an animated film.’ Three years later they did Yellow Submarine, so you can see how things change.”

 

Funny, I used to listen to this soundtrack ad nauseum on my record player when I was a kid.

I can't remember the vultures. I think I was too young and didn't know exactly who the Beatles were yet. Would've been cool if they DID do the song though.

While not Disney, I'm surprised no one has mentioned the Flintstones, who parodied or referenced EVERY big pop culture act to fit in with their "prehistoric" identity. (Ann Marg-Rock!) Remember the Flintstone and Rubbles wearing Beatle wigs singing "Yabba Dabba Yeah Yeah Yeah" to freak out their neighbors? Or the Wayouts, whose sound was half-Beatles/half-Beach Boys? I know the Jetsons parodied the Fabs at least once, too.

I think the Flinstones has been around since the 50's
